This week, Northalsted Business Alliance announced Chicago Pride Fest‘s June 20-21 dates have been postponed, with Labor Day weekend being considered as an alternative – contingent on an improved public health landscape in the fall.
The Chicago Pride Parade Organizing Committee also announced that the Chicago Pride Parade previously scheduled for June 28th would also be postponed. This is the first postponement in the event’s 50 year history.
Thus, Chicagoans will not be able to come together as a community this June to honor the sacrifice and strides we have made towards equality and dignity. But don’t you dare despair!
Let’s remind ourselves, the spirit of Pride resides in each of us, all the time, with or without the joy of our parades & festivals. Mind blow? So go ahead, proudly love yourselves and each other – from a distance – day in and day out, until we meet again. 🏳️🌈

Volunteers Needed: Since the COVID-19 outbreak hit the city, visitors to Lakeview Pantry, Chicago’s largest food pantry, have increased by over 80%.
To help keep up with demand, and offer a safe space for volunteers to help sort and pack food, the Pantry will be setting up and managing a temporary satellite food distribution center on the main concourse at Wrigley Field.
They are in need of more volunteers to meet demand, visit lakeviewpantry.org/volunteer/ to learn more and sign up. Can’t volunteer? Consider making a donation to help those in need.
